Where is the Surat Basin?
The Surat Basin is a geological basin in eastern Australia. It is part of the Great Artesian Basin drainage basin of Australia.

How fast does oil travel in a pipeline?
3 to 8 miles per hour
Oil moves through pipelines at speeds of 3 to 8 miles per hour. Pipeline transport speed is dependent upon the diameter of the pipe, the pressure under which the oil is being transported, and other factors such as the topography of the terrain and the viscosity of the oil being transported.
Can Australia produce its own fuel?
Australia currently has four fuel refineries that commenced operation between 1949 and 1965 (see Table 1). Australia’s extraction of its own crude oil and related petroleum products has declined over the last decade, and much of the relatively small volume we produce is exported to Asian refineries.
What is the longest pipeline in Australia?
Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline
The Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP) is the longest natural gas pipeline in Australia. It is 660mm in diameter, which also makes it one of Australia’s largest in terms of transmission capacity. At the time of its commissioning in 1984, it was one of the longest gas pipelines in the world.
How do you know if your house needs gas?
Start by looking for an access panel on the side of the water heater. If you remove it and see a blue flame, that’s a pilot light, which only gas models have. Connected pipes are also indicators of gas, while an electric water heater will simply have a cord going into the top or side of the unit.
Where are the gas pipelines in Australia located?
Australia’s gas transmission network covers over 20 000 kms. An interconnected transmission pipeline network runs from Queensland to Tasmania, providing a competitive environment for gas producers, pipeline operators and gas retailers, and strengthening security of supply.
Are there negative numbers on the Adelaide pipeline?
There are no negative numbers displayed on the screen. For bi-directional pipelines, observe the direction of the arrow to determine which way gas is flowing. The nomination for Adelaide on the map is displaying the SEA Gas nomination only. We are working on a solution to also include nominations from the Moomba to Adelaide pipeline.
How to determine the direction of a bi-directional pipeline?
For bi-directional pipelines, observe the direction of the arrow to determine which way gas is flowing. The nomination for Adelaide on the map is displaying the SEA Gas nomination only. We are working on a solution to also include nominations from the Moomba to Adelaide pipeline. The actual number is displaying data for both pipelines.
Who is the gas regulator for Western Australia?
On 1 January 2010, Western Australia became a participating jurisdiction under the National Gas Law to the extent set out in the National Gas Access (WA) Act 2009. The regulator for all pipelines except those in WA, is the Australian Energy Regulator (AER). The regulator for the WA pipelines is the Energy Regulation Authority (ERA).
